Good morning everyone! Today from Slazenger Heritage, your vintage sportswear store, we are going to talk to you about the new changes in Wimbledon this 2022. Although there are still a few months left for one of the most important championships to be held, there is already talk of the new planned changes.
Wimbledon is the most traditional tournament on the entire circuit. It is celebrated between the end of June and the beginning of July in the middle of summer since 1877.
The new planning
To start, this year the tournament will be held from June 27 to July 10. But this year, Middle Sunday will be suspended. Middle Sunday is the break on Sunday that marks the halfway point of the tournament. In this way, the tennis tournament will start that Sunday. Furthermore, the rounds of the second week will be played in a mixed way.
Moreover, the London tournament will start the individual round of 16 between Sunday and Monday ( before they were played only on Monday) and will continue with quarterfinals on Tuesday and Wednesday, women’s semifinals on Thursday, and men’s on Friday. And finally, the women’s final will be played on Saturday and the men’s on Sunday.
In addition, the mixed doubles final, to be played on Thursday, will be brought forward three days. Because the mixed draw will start in the sixteenth instead of thirty seconds before the end.
However, some customs of several years will be maintained, such as white clothing for players and work teams.
